See header... listen to the fanfair.

I was impressed by how sparkley the meeple was. Sort of like John Travolta meets Liberace. Very pretty

Only 5000? I'd have guessed that someone that posts so much would be near 15000 already!

Maybe, if instead of being so cranky, he tried to be nice, and cheerful? More threads thanking others for their amazing amazingness? How about an ficto-biographical geeklist, describing a harsh childhood where he learned about the value of a dollar? Teen years spent fighting leprosy? His bid to stop world hunger, one slice of bacon at a time? That'd get thumbs for sure.

Well, once again we find that clowning and anarchy don't mix.

I'm writing an unauthorized biography of MisterCranky, tentatively titled: "MisterCranky Would Never, Ever, Not for Any Reason or Amount of Money, Use the Phrase 'Amazing Amazingness.'"

Well all I can say is, "I wasn't there when he hit 5000. And it's long overdue. And he could have made any number of self-serving GeekLists requiring users to thumb posts about cats eating bacon vs. ducks eating waffles. But he didn't. He got his thumbs the old-fashioned way: He earned them. Because in his tiny little mind he thinks his name is Barney. Not Smith, just Barney. Like the deputy, or the guard at Mesa Verde. That's right--cranky old Barney, the thumb-happy malcontent."

Don't grieve over Jorge, Isaac. He's extremely jealous of my Xbox 360 achievements and the fact that State College stole Alfred Wallace from him.

This is a major disappointment. I was hoping for:

I was there when Mr. Cranky hit 5000

- monkeys with a cricket bat
or
- baby seals with a palm frond
or
- days without an STD

*Something* interesting. 5000 thumbs??? Bah. Boooorrrriiiinnngggg.

Who knew being cranky was so popular. I mean, he can bake his 5000 thumbs into a pie of mediocrity, lather it in a layer of spite and serve it to the faceless masses for all I care.

Nothing like a cranky pie.

I was hoping that he'd gone on a tear and reached 5000 GeekQuestions. :(

Cranky, you ass. (gross ad hominem infraction)

You know as well as I do that I've been a short and curly away from banning you any number of times. If only you weren't so sexy... (fractured gross hominem)
